3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice clean pour, dark amber color with a nice soft lacing. Good hints of hops, citrus/grapefruit, what you come to find in a nice DIPA. ABV is masked very well. Super drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Snifter on tap at Neon’s. Mostly clear red / orange color. Thin white head, kind of bubbly, but mostly good retention and good lace. Medium-plus body, more dry texture. More pronounced carbonation. Dry texture, kind of soft. Bitter taste, with a light bite in the finish. Piney, sort of resiny grapefruit - citrus aroma. Some tropical fruit. Alright, but not really west coast DIPA level great. Overall, not the most appealing DIPA I’ve ever had. Finishing the snifter took longer than expected.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark gold in color with white head and very little lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Taste is very drinkable for a double IPA. Taste is also pine and citrus hops with enough sweetness to tame the bitter. Nicely done.

Being a well crafted beer it doesn’t leave an over bittering feel on the pallate. Can definitely drink several bottles of this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Craig. The nose is caramel, spicy/fruity hops. The flavor is caramel, slight citrusy, resin, toast. Not bad, could use more hop character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: Pours dark copper, slightly cloudy, big white head. Aroma of caramel malts. Sweet caramel on the front and a salty finish. Fizzy, slightly sweet and a sour finish hides the alcohol well. REally malt forward, slightly bitter finish. Easy to drink.
